Report: WC has highest property taxes in U.S.

A report by an independent tax group says homeowners in Westchester County paid the highest property taxes in the country between 2005 - 2009.

The study by the Tax Foundation, a D.C.-based tax research group, put average property taxes in Westchester at $9,044.

That number is nearly five times the national average, which was $1,917 during the same period.

Another county here in New York came in a close second: Nassau County homeowners paid an average of $8,940.
